Lyric Fire: NaPoWriMo 2012 – Day 18 of 30 Poems in 30 Days – Lyrical Lullaby

NaPoWriMo 2012 – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 18

Count down! Count down! Twelve more days to go! Well, in this poetry challenge at least. I pray that I always have enough poetry to fill each day for the rest of my life. I’m following the prompt again today and guess what? Lullabies are on the menu! To be exact, we are to construct a special lullaby for poets. Here is my offering:

Lyrical Lullaby

Sleep well my brain cells

Go ahead and snooze

Jump over a sheep

And a cloud or two

 

Travel to the Mojave Desert

Swim the Caspian Sea

Juggle happily like a circus clown

Just remember to come back to me

 

But before you do

Wind surf and sail

Build colorful memories

That make great tales

 

Then wake me gently

Revive me slow

I’ll work you hard, but with purpose

So you can then go dream some more

    Lovely lullaby, poets do dream about a lot of things, sometimes while sleeping and mostly while awake:)

  3. I love this Sulekha: “poets do dream about a lot of things, sometimes while sleeping and mostly while awake” – So true girl friend, so true. 🙂
    LOL! Awww, you’re probably tired from all of your creating this month. Go ahead and take a nap. You deserve the rest Janaki! 🙂

    I really think our soul takes a hike when we sleep, visiting exotic places and rejuvenating themselves for another long day. Beautifully written as always Tameka

    Dear Tameka,
    Earlier this morning while I was responding to comments, my mind was already working thinking what to write for letter “Q”. Sometimes, I can just jump up in the middle of the night with some thought that occurred to me while sleeping…good for me…not so for my wife! LOL
    Loved this again. Nice image too. Thanks for sharing.

    I believe that too Rimly. Sometimes I wake up an know I have been to distant lands! It’s a great feeling, but memories fade too fast! Thanks dear!
    LOL! I can imagine Andy. I know the feeling. My sleep is interrupted often by words that want and need my attention. Hugs!
    Thanks Sweepy! It is nice to think of our brain cells jetting about. 🙂
